Title: The shell starts to crack? - Real owners of Myanmar’s oil and gas blocks come forward
Date of publication: October 2014
Description/subject: \"Corrupt politicians all over the world use companies and trusts with hidden ownership to seize public property worth billions of dollars. This deprives ordinary citizens of money that should be spent on development and empowers unaccountable elites, often helping them gain and maintain power at the expense of democracy, human rights and peace. Revealing the real people behind companies is critical to achieving genuine reform in Myanmar, where military families and crony tycoons have long benefited from control of natural resources like gas and gemstones. This is a critical time—in July 2014, Myanmar became a candidate member of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), a global transparency standard which recommends that the identities of individuals who own and control oil, gas and mining companies are published. If Myanmar can meet the standard, it will go a long way to addressing the question of who really owns the companies that control the country’s most valuable natural assets. To test the waters, Global Witness asked each of the companies granted oil and gas blocks in Myanmar over the past 12 months to declare their ultimate beneficial ownership. These blocks were awarded in the wake of a public commitment by the Ministry of Energy to manage Myanmar’s energy sector in line with international best practices, and alongside the engagement of leading energy companies in Myanmar’s EITI process. As such, the willingness of block winners to open up their ownership is an important yardstick for progress on reform of Myanmar’s extractive industries...\"

Title: Ceasefires and Durable Solutions in Myanmar: a lessons learned review.....Commentary: IDPs and refugees in the current Myanmar peace process
Date of publication: March 2014
Description/subject: "Over six decades of ethnic conflict in Myanmar have generated displacement crises just as long. At the time of writing there are an estimated 640,747 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Myanmar, and 415,373 refugees originating from the country.However, these figures are not fully indicative of levels of forced migration, as obtaining reliable data for IDPs remains difficult, while millions of regular and irregular migrants have also left the country, often fleeing similar conditions to those faced by documented refugees and IDPs. Since a new government came into power in 2011, it has managed to secure fresh ceasefire agreements with the majority of the country’s ethnonationalist armed groups (EAGs), potentially inching one step closer to a lasting solution for the country’s hundreds of thousands of refugees and IDPs. As the possibility for voluntary return and resettlement of displaced people opens up, there is a lot to learn from a look back at past ceasefire periods in Myanmar where movements of such populations have taken place. Focusing on the cases of the Kachin Independence Organisation (KIO) ceasefire in 1994, and the New Mon State Party (NMSP) ceasefire in 1995, which had very different impacts on the displaced populations affected, this paper aims to provide lessons for the current transition..." Jolliffe)....."This commentary reflects on some key findings emerging from Kim Jolliffe’s paper on lessons learned from previous ceasefire agreements in Myanmar, and examines how issues relating to refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been addressed in the current ceasefires and emerging peace process in Myanmar. The main focus of both papers are the Kachin situation (past and present), a case study of historic forced migration and attempted solutions in Mon areas, and the current situation in Karen areas. Comprehensive treatment of these issues would have to take into account (inter alia) the contexts in western Myanmar, and Shan and Karenni/Kayah areas..." (South)

Title: Dilemmas of Burma in transition
Date of publication: March 2011
Description/subject: "Until a government of Burma is able to accept the role of non-state armed groups as providers for civilian populations and affords them legitimacy within a legal framework, sustained conflict and mass displacement remain inevitable. Throughout decades of brutal conflict, which have seen thousands of villages destroyed and millions of people displaced, Burma’s ruling regime has made no effort to provide support for affected civilians. As a result, Burma’s ethnic non-state armed groups (NSAGs) – thought to hold territory covering a quarter of the country’s landmass – play a crucial role as protectors and providers of humanitarian aid. The approach to governance taken by different NSAGs varies greatly, as does the level of willing support given to them by their respective populations. In these traditional cultures, hierarchical leadership structures have evolved over time, often based largely on loyalty to those who provide support and protection. Leaders linked to or part of NSAGs are now firmly established as being responsible for the governance of millions of people in Burma. This situation poses a threat to the state which, in turn, has responded with brute force, perpetuating the cycle of conflict and protracted displacement..."

Title: A Study of Factors Influencing Remittances of Myanmar Migrants (Case Study in Samut Sakhon, Thailand)
Date of publication: November 2011
Description/subject: An estimated 300,000 Myanmar migrants work in Samut Sakhon (Mahachai) , Thailand, as a key labor force in the local economy (www.phamit.org). Capitalizing on the comparatively high salary migrants are paid, remittances are used by families for a wide range of purposes. However, even before migrants send remittances to families, they face complex choices and costs in their daily work conditions, at home, and around Samut Sakhon . This paper examines the relationship of Myanmar migrants’ income, lifestyle, and expenditures in Samut Sakhon, to remittance payments to families in Myanmar. This paper used a snowball data collection method and examine the initial variable of income in relationship to remittance payments, and how these are influenced by daily needs, age, length of stay, and costs for legalizing documents. Then using of focus group discussion will examine the results of interviews I’ve conducted with migrants working in Samut Sakhon about the use of remittances channel and utilization of remittance payments back home. For migrants who make payments, this data indicates the inf luence of their daily choices and cost factors on the amount a family inside Myanmar will receive. In particular this paper will discuss the importance of income security on remittance payments for migrant workers. This paper will use a qualitative set of focus group discussions to examine the initial variable of income in relationship to remittance payments and the influence costs for legalizing documents..."...

Date of publication: 1977
Description/subject: Subject Terms: 1. Myanmar - Political conditions, 1886 - 87; 2. Myanmar - History - British rule, 1886 - 1942..... Key Words: 1. Indian Newspapers; 2. Annexation of Myanmar..... "Political conditions of Myanmar immediately after the annexation (1886-87) as seen through the Indian press. The people were governed by a new master. Rebels were branded as dacoits by a critical Indian press which ridiculed and attacked Lord Dufferin's direct administration. They called His Excellency a quack politician, not a farseeing statesman. The press favoured a native prince on the Myanmar throne, a practice common in India. The press argued that the English were suppressing the so-called dacoits at the expense of Indian tax-payers."

Title: Ethnic Conflict and Social Services in Myanmar\'s Contested Regions (English)
Date of publication: 17 June 2014
Description/subject: With development aid commitments on the rise, Myanmar has the potential to greatly strengthen the delivery of health, education, and other social services. However, while it is established practice for aid agencies to back state-led development strategies, this presents complications in some of Myanmar\\\'s conflict affected areas where ethnic armed organizations (EAOs) and associated networks have been the primary social service providers for decades. This study explores the significance of collaboration between the state and EAOs to peacebuilding and provides broad guidance on how international aid agencies can effectively direct social service spending to help build trust and support the peace process, and avoid further exacerbating conflicts.

The Lancet wishes to assist health workers and researchers working under difficult and dangerous conditions to bring this outbreak to a close.

Title: MYANMAR Country Profile prepared by the ICJ Centre for the Independence of Judges and Lawyers
Date of publication: June 2014
Description/subject: \\\"Myanmar has thus far failed to ratify most human rights treaties. Judicial independence is provided for in law, but not respected in practice. In particular, the degree of control exercised by the Executive over the appointment process and the lack of transparency over criteria for selection and promotion, insufficient security of tenure, executive control over the budget and insufficient pay and training are inconsistent with international standards. Lawyers lack a self-governing professional body that can defend the profession’s integrity and professional interests. Although their independence has increased substantially since 2011, on-going challenges remain, such as interference in politically sensitive and criminal cases. Structural problems such as the poor state of legal education have yet to be addressed.\\\"

Title: Needs and Options for a New International Instrument In the Field of Business and Human Rights
Date of publication: June 2014
Description/subject: \"...The field covered under the title “ business and human rights” is vast and complex. It encompasses issues relating to the respective role of States and business enterprises, which as such cover a wide diversity of matters. It may address issues relating to incorporation and functioning of corporate bodies in domestic jurisdictions, the financing of economic activities, rules governing transnational investment, State-owned national bodies that promote and insure export and imports, the securities field, and the relationship between the State and private business es, particularly those operating abroad. It touches upon the law of civil remedies and criminal law, and in many countries it involves constitutional law. While there are many actors and situations that may exert influence on business behaviour, this report focuses on the identification of gaps in international law and its implementation, which are arguably part of the permissive environment for businesses\\\' abuse of human rights. Business conduct is constrained not only by publicly enacted laws and regulations, the breach of which may be sanctioned by public authorities, but also by a plethora of written and unwritten rules that govern economic interactions in the market, including consumer preferences and State preferences as a consumer of businesses’ goods and services. Self-regulation in the form of enterprise codes of conduct responds to those market incentives and can be fairly effective when certain conditions are in place. However, the ICJ and many other actors have been critical of the value of these initiatives as an effective tool for corporate accountability and have warned against over-reliance on them. As a form of regulation of business behaviour, self-regulation is not the focus of this report. Moreover, multi- stakeholder initiatives and codes of conduct as regulatory options have been mapped out during the work carried out by Professor Ruggie during his mandate as Special Representative. To undertake this work again would be duplicative and unnecessary. For the purposes of this report, it suffices to restate the general consensus that a mix of voluntary and regulatory approaches is possible and necessary when addressing business and human rights. The objective of this report is to identify gaps in international regulation that could justify the need for new international instruments. The report focuses only on those gaps that are: 1) of a normative character, in terms of defining the content and scope of international standards; or 2) relate to the effective implementation of those standards, including access to an effective remedy for victims of abuse. Significantly, most of those issues have already been effectively addressed in various ways by human rights advocates, scholars and jurists. The report aims at recommending options to address those normative and implementation gaps...\"
